1- Improvement of SEO titles
First, avoid Keyword Stuffing, that is, repeat the keywords and their variations over and over again. Only with this change I have passed a website from position 114 to 34, because to Google that sounds like spam and directly down your rankings:
Second, look for keywords by which you appear nearby, and add those phrases to the content or in some title:
2- Improve the loading of your website
(Video pending for Wednesday)
Advance: You can check the time it takes your web to load in http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt If it takes more than 4 seconds you should make an improvement yes or yes. The usual thing is that the main problem is A / the hosting, B / the plugins, C / the theme
If you use a very cheap hosting, the best solution is to move to a serious one, which should not be too expensive, although it will always depend on your needs, the type of website, the number of visitors you have, etc.
This is not a change that can usually be done in 5 minutes, but I know two hosting companies that will be responsible for migrating your website, so I can say that it will take 5 minutes, at least to request it. The two companies I recommend are the first two of the article Hosting Comparison
The Theme and the plugins
There is a false myth that says “more than 10 plugins can not”, but in fact it depends on the quality of the plugins and the theme you use (or if you do not use WordPress, the equivalent in the system that your website has)
Use the P3 profiler plugin to find out if you have one that slows down the load, and if one stands out, consider if you really need the functionality. There is no correct answer, it depends on each case and if you value more the function that offers, or the loading time.
In the case of the Theme the problem is bigger because if your web / blog is very personalized, a change of theme is not 5 minutes, but if it is simple or is newly made, it will be an option to consider. In the WordPress Resources section you have a recommendation of themes that stand out for their quality.
